“Very often while we are out shooting with our couples on an engagement photo session after the first hour goes by, we end up feeling like we are hanging out with a couple of old friends. On this day in Chicago with Tim + Sarah, this was another one of those type of days.
Tim + Sarah are a referral to us though Kurt + Carrie. Tim and Kurt work together at a logistical firm on the North Shore. When Kurt found out that Tim proposed, he right away passed off our name – – thanks Kurt! We love referrals and enjoy seeing familiar faces at friend’s of friend’s weddings a few times throughout the year. After our first meeting, we learned Sarah was a school teacher and soon a creative idea for their engagement session came to mind. It was a perfect fit … why not have T+S write love notes to each other in chalk on the wall? The idea was a little difficult to complete at first, when we struggled to find the right wall, but eventually we stumbled upon the perfect spot. The next challenge was to draw the perfect heart… which made Sarah and Tim laugh very often creating some uninhibited smiles. It was amazing with T+S just letting go and letting the photograph happen what natural moments we then captured. Enjoyed capturing the wind floating Sarah’s hair, the smiles, teamwork and seeing T+S in love… even if the drawing didn’t turn out quite as planned. : )
The day’s weather started out a little windy which left hardly any clouds for an amazingly crystal clear blue sky day. We had a great time exploring a few places in the harbor area, along the lakefront and in nature shooting a variety of photo styles and talking about their wedding plans, Tim living in Wisconsin & Sarah in Illinois and their long distance lives coming together soon, and a little bit of work and business. We had a wonderful time + hope the weather is this gorgeous again come next June. Can’t wait to photograph your wedding Tim + Sarah. Hope everyone loves your Save the Date announcements.”
Tim + Sarah are going to tie the knot next Summer in June at St. Scholastic Church in Woodridge. Their reception will follow at Bobak’s Signature Events and Conference Center at Seven Bridges in Lisle.
